Abandonware DOS title

Realistic space simulations: no sci-fi

Like civilian flight sims, realistic space simulator games (as Wikipedia calls them) allow the player to pilot a space vehicle in a realistic way, with no science fiction involved in any way: no aliens, no star wars ships. Realistic space sims usully obey the (simulated) laws of physics in a scrict way.
